"We Have To Pass The Bill to Find Out What's In It"

Remember Nancy Pelosi saying those words back in March?

Well now that we actually passed Obamacare we're finding things out. Even Obama concedes that the bill hurts the economy and small businesses in particular. Here's what Dear Leader had to say

"The 1099 provision in the healthcare bill appears to be too burdensome for small businesses,"... "It just involves too much paperwork, too much filing. It's probably counterproductive."

Yes, the same moron who ran around frantically trying to tell all of us how awesome Obamacare would be now admits that it's counterproductive. You mean to tell me that oppressive bureacracy is counterproductive and burdensome for businesses? Say it ain't so, Joe!

If Obamacare isn't repealed it's going to create a giant clusterfuck as provisions go into effect and their practical implications come to light. We're going to see a lot more of this.

But wait, there's more! Corporate America (and unions) are receiving Obamacare opt-out waivers to keep them from dropping coverage for employees. How many times did you hear folks like myself say that Obamacare would cause employers to simply stop offering coverage? Hmm, and now the government is modifying the rules for large corporations in order to keep that very thing from happening.

Even the AARP, which campaigned furiously in support of Obamacare, is now admitting that it failed to deliver on its central promise of lowering costs.

Inconceivable! No one could possibly have anticipated any of this....

Thank god we voted at least some of these bums out.
